Tos Review: Northstar Games- Wits & Wagers Family






Again I’m sure you have heard me say it enough… we love games in this house! Board games are one of our favorite past times! However, finding a really good one… where everyone can play. Seems we range from ages 6 to 67 here, is not always the easiest task.


Recently we had the opportunity to review the game Wits & Wagers… I wasn’t so sure it was going to be a hit, but I have to tell you after playing this game, the kids were begging to play again.

This is the Wits & Wagers family edition. They also have a party one.  The great part about this game, is while its trivia all you have to do is write a guess.

Here’s how it works, a person picks up the trivia card and asks a question. Then each person or team writes on their card a number (or guess a number) to the questions. Then they place the card down showing their answer. From there people put their meeples (cute little people)  on the answer they think is right, or closest to the answer. You have two meeples so you can put one on two different answers to try and get points. Then the answer is read, and the answer closest without going over is the winner. The points are figured out by who had a meeples on the right answer. Plus the person who wrote the right answer gets a point. The first person/team to reach 15 pts wins!


Some of the best parts for us about this game was that my 6 yr old could play, cause if she was on a team, she can write. Plus there are some questions that she even knew the answers too, such as how many Disney Princess’s are their?




The game includes:

  • 150 Trivia Question Cards (2 questions on each)
  • 5 Dry Erase Answer Boards
  • 5 Dry Erase Pens
  • 5 Large Meeples
  • 5 Small Meeples
  • A Dry Erase Score Board
  • Rules


We absolutely loved this game, and it will become a regular Friday night game night game for us!!! Smile
